The 52nd National Parachute Military Championship arrives with power to the Sewer Air Base (07/04/2019)

Ten teams participate in this edition, of which seven belong to different Air Force Paratroop Units (2 from the Air Force Parachute Patrol, 2 from the Military Parachute School, 2 from the Parachute Sappers Squadron and 1 from the Support Squadron for Air Deployment), and 2 for the Land Army (BRIPAC and ACINF-Sewer).

As a novelty, one of the teams will be made up of Civil Guard personnel.

The teams will compete in two modalities: landing precision and training in free fall.

The first modality is that each jumper, in the landing, makes the first contact on a target whose center is one centimeter of radius, having to touch it or as close as possible to the center.

In the second modality, each team composed of four jumpers, must perform during the free fall, the largest number of figures, which prior to each launch, are determined by draw.

In the precision test, eight rounds will be made, and a final tie-break will be made, with the winner having the least number of centimeters in the sum of all his throws on the target.

In the freefall training test, eight rounds will also be made, resulting in the winning team having the most points during the whole competition in the execution of the figures.

All launches are made from aircraft T12-B (Aviocar) belonging to the 721 Air Force Squadron of the Sewer BA.

Said parachuting activity takes place from Monday 8th and will continue until next Thursday 11th, from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., provided weather conditions permit.

All those who want to witness the jumps of this exciting competition are invited, during the parachutist activity schedule, since this edition will be held in the launch area whose access will be from the RM-E1 Avenida Regajos de Sangonera (behind the CC. E.leclerc).

The Championship will end with the closing ceremony and the trophies that will be held next Friday, April 12, at 12:00 hours, at the Plaza de Armas, the Sewer Air Base.
